Arrow Rust On Driver

Hi people hope you all good can some one give us a hand. I have rust on the driver door due to sum stupid git before me banged the car on a post and made a dent then filled it with some pollyfiller and some T-cutting 2 make it look better which it hasent. Now its started too crack and RUST which im not happy about cause the car doesnt have one spot of rust on it just needs some major T-cutting and a new front bumper cause its missing a bit but cause i have the mambo I.E it comes wiv colour coded bumpers. I can only find black ones and cant afford to get it sprayed. so plz if you have ideas about the RUST and a bumper be very greatful.

Re: Rust On Driver

well for the rust,you need to get it back to the metal and treat it with a rust proofer and then spray it. theres really no shortcuts here as all that you will do is delay the rust coming back.
as fro the bumper you can get a good finish with aerosols but you have to do the prep and apply fine coats

Re: Rust On Driver

If the rust has started from the outside, you should be fine. Try a wire brush mounted in an electric drill to clean it back to shiny steel. Then, paint with an etch-primer aerosol, and once that is dry, apply some body filler. You'll then discover what it's like to block-sand with 280 grit, re-fill, and block-sand again... over and over until the surface is perfect. Then you can prime, sand with 600 grit, and paint, quite possibly with aerosol cans. Allow several days for the paint to harden, then T-cut it to blend it in with the rest of the door.

Put in the time and you'll get the result. Take shortcuts, and it will look like rubbish!

BTW I laughed at the subject of this message... Rust on the driver... I don't have much rust on me, do you have rust?

-Alex

A rust free Uno? Impossible. Once you go looking for rust you'll get a shock!
